Kitty.. from your posts, you seem to be jumping around constantly with your diet..
Doing this I imagine is creating Enormous stress on your body and your digestive system. I dont believe your nutrionist is going to tell you or inform you of anything new, I think your just hoping she is going to introduce you to a quick fix or somthing...


Listen, you need to create a simple plan.. you already know whats going on with your body, you can feel it, and listen to it. You dont need anyone else to tell you wha*** doing..


You need to take a diet plan for yourself, and STICK TO it.

You need to take it slow.. I dont think body weight is somthing to completely concern yourself with..

you know what diet has worked best for your, remember your colon and digestive system, is raw inflammed, sensitive, eating those salads, nuts and seeds, are going to be really irritating to your body...

You m ay want to consider eating a little bit of meat if your concerned about weight etc.

As I said, eat for your health.. you know what is BEST for you, nobody else does.

So lets create a good diet plan for you, somthing that will keep you up and going, feeling good, and so your getting the nutrition you need...

As Michael Pollan says, "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants." I strongly suggest his book, The Omnivore's Dilemma, for a sensible healthy approach to eating. And chill out- you can't jump from thing to thing to thing & expect to see any change in a day.

Let food be your medicine, and your medicine be your food.

Thanks herbalgerbals your right about jumbing around every where. Im just not quite sure what to do. I strggled on the raw foods. I do need to create a diet plan. I just am not sure what will keep me in remmision and what wont. Im not quite sure what will get me through the day and what wont. I have a stressful sales managers job where Im watching my company downsize. My department will be the next to go. This doesnt help I know.

You need to find a SIMPLE clean diet, that will stabalize you nutrionally, dont worry about weight, you wont go into remission right away, remember its take years and years and years for us to become sick, its not going to fix itself over night no matter what we do.

I take medicines, I take supplements, and I try to eat the purist and cleanest and most simple diet. and it has proved to do best for me so far.. just stick to what your doing, I dont think you need to waist money on a nutrionist, she is probably trained in mainsteam diets, she doesnt suffer from IBD ( I imagine) she will tell you to mix it up Im sure..

If I were you, I would not ask her for advice, but I would tell her what you WANT to do, tell her you want a simple, dominantly vegan/vegetarian diet, if I were you, I would try to include a little steamed fish. mostly veggie and fruits tho.. but simple veggies, nothing crazy, try just romaine lettuce.
